Our SPCA of Hancock County Pet of the Week would like to say hello this week!

This gorgeous long-haired orange tabby is as sweet as marmalade, with just a pinch of zest that keeps life fun and spunky.

Josiah is a mature kitty of 8 years, so he still has plenty of energy left but doesn’t need to play, play, play as a kitten does, and he has all the manners of a gentleman and is purrfectly housetrained. In fact, when he sees a mask, he’s pretty sure they must be a bad guy. He’s old-fashioned that way.

While we don’t know how he would be living with cats or dogs, we do know he doesn’t mind them passing by. Best of all, Josiah has been wonderful with small children and gives them kisses.

So why hasn’t he been snatched up into a loving home yet? Well, Josiah is diabetic so he needs daily insulin shots. The staff at the SPCA of Hancock County will be more than happy to show potential adopters how to give insulin and help you through the process, including recommending the best places to buy insulin in the future.

Josiah is a darling and would love to go to a wonderful family that will give him plenty of head rubs, ear scratches, and a warm bed to sleep in.  Don’t hesitate to apply for Josiah!
